CHUMANN was a fervent admirer of Byron and in 1848. when he was thirty-eight, he put his whole heart into the composition of an Overture and fifteen pieces of incidental music for the stage presentation of the poet's drama, Manfred.
' Never,' he averred. ' have I expended such love and strength on any previous composition. - consiaer it, he wrote to Liszt, ' one of the finest children of my brain.'
The Overture does not seek to follow the incidents of the drama. It is a piece of mood painting, depicting the sombre, passionate character of Count Manfred, a man of bold and powerful impulses, who sold himself to the devil, lived aloof from men, and died very-much tormented by remorse.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
